Human resource management has become an integral part of the managerial role and is vital to the success of most organizations. Emphasising current developments in theory and practice, David Goss discusses the key issues in human resource management and highlights the extent to which previous personnel procedures have been superceded by emerging ideas and techniques in HRM. His examination of the field from a non-specialist's position offers a critical assessment of the human resource function and draws the links between HRM and general management practice and strategy.
